What’s Needed for a Warrior Religion?
I have been sent a vision for the warrior religion by the gods. Or maybe by nature itself. There are certain things that have to happen to make a warrior religion take hold. It helps to have a prophet, a messenger of the gods, but in this day and age, would anyone believe a prophet? Perhaps instead, you need a vision for the future. A vision that inspires people to save themselves in the face of annihilation.
The next requirement is the easiest. There must be a historical basis for creating a “chosen people.” The people I speak of are Real Americans. Men and women descended from the Europeans who settled the New World. These settlers created a race, Americans, who’s descendants conquered the world. Now, one must not confuse the Real American with the founding of the United States. The founding documents is not what made Americans great.
What made Americans great were their trials on the frontier. They were tests from the gods. We are descended from a people who were forced back into nature. Our ancestors found the way to survive and thrive in nature. This gave them a natural superiority over the old world. It’s how Continental soldiers, many of whom fought barefoot with little food, managed to hold out against the strongest empire in the world at time. Their descendants followed manifest destiny all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
The hardest requirement for the warrior religion will be its theology. What gods will rally us? What gods will we honor and worship? How do you make a conquered people believe in the will of the gods again? The society we’re born into is godless. It’s utterly separated from the culture and traditions of our ancestors.
Primordial and Divine
In all the books I’ve read in my life, there is only one that I’ve felt connect me with the old world and the old understanding of the world. Well, it’s not even a book, rather fragments of a lost book. A book lost to history. How could this book be lost? I suspect it was done on purpose. Bad people didn’t want this knowledge passed down to the next generation. Or perhaps, it’s hidden somewhere, waiting to be found like the next Holy Grail.
What we know of this book is passed down in fragments. Simple quotes from the world by other ancient authors. The book I speak about, if you haven’t guessed already is On Nature by Heraclitus. The fragments left to us of Heraclitus’ work are both primordial and divine. Does this mean I endorse the Olympians to return as crushing force to lead the warrior religion? No, but while Heraclitus names some of the Olympians in the fragments, his work itself is primordial and goes beyond the basic understanding of the gods. Heraclitus perhaps, is our prophet.
Heraclitus was a prophet of nature, the way of the world, and of how men should be. Much of what he said is still true today. Take for example his attack on physicians: “Physicians who cut, burn, stab, and rack the sick demand a fee for it which they do not deserve.” You can argue that physicians today are immensely better than the physicians of Heraclitus’s time. Yes this is true, but iatrogenic death is still one of the leading causes of death in the modern world. The death rate goes down when the doctors are on strike. The Word of Heraclitus remains true even today.
The Disciples of the Everliving Fire
“We must know that war is common to all and strife is justice, and that all things come into being through strife.” -Heraclitus
True struggle is what will give life to and perpetuate the warrior religion. Strife is justice. The calling on our side is for the true struggle. The total war. The fight to end this fake and gay world. To give men the purpose we believed ourselves made for. Heraclitus calls for excellence, for following the way of the gods. He believed in the righteousness of strife and struggle.
Heraclitus tells us that “war is the father of all and king of all.” Does he mean the gods too? Is war the god this warrior religion has been looking for? Are the gods the sons and daughters of war? It is something to dwell on. What we don’t need to dwell on is the importance of Heraclitus and his work, On Nature.
Maybe War is the god of the warrior religion. Maybe we don’t know the gods, but we know they’re out there. We also know nature. Nature is savage and eternal. The belief in nature alone differentiates you from this gay world. Heraclitus deserves reverence and study in the warrior religion, whatever your opinion on god or the gods. Maybe when he talks about Zeus, the warrior crusader sees his Christian god.
Did you know Oliver Cromwell believed god was leading him to victory? What kind of Christian thinks like this today? It may or may not be necessary to find a theological convergence for the warrior religion. Maybe the beginning can be in the understanding that Heraclitus was a prophet of the gods. His thought has inspired and motivated many of the modern thinkers we elevate today like Friedrich Nietzsche or Jonathan Bowden. He survives today for a reason.
“We are images of God, forever. If you don’t subscribe to that idea, than consider yourself an image of Nature. It doesn’t really matter how you agree with us just as long as you do. We will always know if you do.” -Mike Ma
The last requirement for the warrior religion is the belief — the absolute conviction — that the disciples are chosen and naturally superior to other men. This belief must motivate disciples to make that belief reality. Motivate them to religious fervor, to fanatical training. Differentiate yourself from modernity.
